The company behind “Fivefinger” shoes has agreed to a multi-million dollar settlement.

Vibram USA was the subject of a class-action lawsuit over health claims it made about its shoes.

The company said the barefoot-style shoes could prevent injuries and strengthen muscles.

However, critics argue there is no science to back up the claims.

While the company denies any wrongdoing, it has agreed to pay out $3.75 million to customers who bought the shoes.

It says it will also stop making health claims in its ads.

If the settlement is approved, people who bought the shoes after March 2009 would be eligible for a refund.
